Treasury Time: Celebrate Africa!

Monday, January 21, 2013

We often hold African-themed parties when we get nostalgic for home.  Want to throw your own? Here are a few ideas that add an African vibe to any occasion.
  • For colors, think neutral and natural as in linen, taupe, and khaki, then add animal prints and pops of bold hues
  • Set the scene with vintage style safari photos in rustic wood frames, a pair of vintage binoculars, woven baskets, and carved wooden animals. 
  • Patterned African fabrics make great tablecloths - or decorate your walls with a fun wax print bunting like the one below.
  • For flowers, proteas and strelitzia (also known as bird of paradise) are indigenous to South Africa.  Aloes and other succulents are too, so a grouping of these in pots or vessels of different sizes also make nice centerpieces.
  • For a wedding, I think bridesmaids would look amazing wearing a single piece of African inspired jewelry (I seriously adore the color-blocked bib necklace by The Glossy Queen
  • Don't forget to put on some African music to get everyone on their feet - filled with happy energy and the rhythm of the drums, it's the spirit of Africa! Try African Party by Putumayo Records. 

Take a look at the collection below and the photos in the previous post for more African inspiration :)
